“…Then that little man in black there, he says women can’t have as much rights as men, ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.” Excerpt from Abolitionist Sojourner Truth’s speech at Women’s Convention in Akron, Ohio, 1851
IT IS WITH GREAT HONOR THAT I GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO THE FOUNDER OF BWIE(Black Women in Europe) website, Adrianne George and to encourage Americans(especially in Asia, Middle East, and Africa) to vote for her as as a campaign delegate for the Democratic National Convention to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina in September 2012. Please view the following excerpt:
My name is Adrianne George and I want to be a delegate for the Democratic National Convention representing Americans Abroad. You can join Democrats Abroad and/or get more information about voting in the Global Primary from this link:
If I am elected as a delegate, I pledge to use that authority to attempt to persuade fellow members of the Democratic Party to oppose one policy in particular, the relatively new and burdensome Visa I-130 application effecting non-US family members that want to live in the United States with their American partners, spouses, and in some cases, parents. For example, while blogging from the convention in Denver in 2008, I ran into my Congresswoman, Eleanor Holmes Norton – I told her I was a member of Democrats Abroad and she said she had heard of us. As a delegate I would have more access to more people in Washington who can affect real change.
